FRG to sponsor SAS Institute’s first Financial Services Executive Summit

CARY, North Carolina – March 1, 2010 – The Financial Risk Group (FRG) is sponsoring the first SAS Financial Services Executive Summit being held at the new Executive Briefing Center at SAS’s World Headquarters in Cary, NC. The Summit is an invite only event targeting an intimate group of senior executives from the financial services industry and focused on topics such as Customer Analytics, Regulatory Reform, Enterprise Risk Management and the increasing importance of analytic processing of data. SAS Worked with the same specialists who crafted the highly collaborative workshops used for the World Economic Forum in Davos in planning the Summit. Built around a unique workspace format, the Summit will be a highly interactive experience which is both results-driven, and at the same time attendee-driven. Less like a lecture and more like a brainstorming session, the summit is sure to be an invigorating experience for all attendees.

“We are extremely excited to be involved in such a unique meeting of the minds.” said FRG partner Mike Forno. “We are as much looking forward to participating in the Summit sessions as we are in showing off some of the Risk Management applications that we have built using SAS technology.”, he added, in reference to the Intelligence in Action Showcase where FRG will be demonstrating to the Summit attendees.

“We couldn’t think of a better way to spend our marketing dollars than to sponsor this event at SAS.”, said FRG CEO Ron Holanek. “When we were asked to be a part of this event it was a great honor and our absolute pleasure.”
